There are several options when deciding on your child(ren)s educational future. The steps that my hubby and I used to reach our decisions are the following. First we listed our options as I have done below. Then we prayed and sought God's will in our lives. In searching for God's will, we sought scripture and again prayed, prayed and prayed.
Option #1 Public School
Defined as - a school that is maintained at public expense for the education of the children of a community or district and that constitutes a part of a system of free public education commonly including primary and secondary schools.
Public schools are funded through and ran by government. Most of the expenses are paid through taxes.
Option #2 Private School
Defined as - a school supported by a private organization or private individuals rather that by the government
Private schools are usually are christian ran and are paid by the parents through fees.
Option # 3 Homeschooling
Defined as - teaching ones child(ren) at home.
Parents are totally responsible for the teaching and the choosing and paying for of curriculum
Option # 4 Un-schooling
Defined as - a home-school education with the child taking the primary responsibility instead of a parent or teacher; also called child-directed learning, self-learning.
